Sennheiser HD 820 arrives at Massdrop!

Massdrop fans, we have Sennheiser-y news for you! The Sennheiser closed-back flagship, the HD 820 is now available for purchase at the Massdrop website. This is the standard version, it is not a “Massdrop x Sennheiser” co-production.

The price right now is $2000, which is also the price at reputable online dealers such as B&H Photo. The prices at Amazon’s start at $1850 BUT look who’s offering them at $1850. Do you know these retailers? Are they authorized Sennheiser dealers? (SPOILER ALERT: they are not!)

PS: to clarify something in case it’s confusing for those not living and breathing on Amazon. If a product is shipped by Amazon (“fulfilled by Amazon”) but sold by a 3rd-party/marketplace seller, the warranty status of the product is determined by the authorized dealer status of the 3rd-party/marketplace seller. Just because it is shipped by Amazon, there’s no automatic transubstantiation of the warranty status!

Doorbuster: Monoprice BT-210 Bluetooth Lightweight On-Ears for $10 w/FS [Currently OOS]

The Monoprice website has launched a doorbuster deal, which, as of the time of writing is out of stock and cannot be ordered, but I’m mentioning it for reference/historical purposes and in case anyone is interested in it and wants to track/babysit it… One per customer…

For $10 with free standard US shipping they offer(ed) the new condition closed-back bluetooth lightweight on-ears Monoprice BT-210, PID 34705. It averages 3.7 out of 5 based on 23 customer reviews… It has 31 answers on 13 questions…

Per the specs these are bluetooth 4.0, with only the basic protocols, (no AAC, no apt-X, no LDAC)…

EU: Sennheiser HD 560S drops to 161 euro

While the Sennheiser HD 560 S open over-ears remains hard to find in the USA, in Europe, we have the first sizable discount, as of the time of writing it is down to 161 euro at Amazon Germany sold and shipped by Amazon Germany actual…

NOTE however that prices at Amazon Germany tend to fluctuate and oscillate between price-points, so the price you see over there may vary depending on which time of the day you check over there…

… BUT as of the time of writing the shipping estimate is “Usually dispatched within 1 to 2 months.”… These Amazon estimates are rather nebulous, sometimes they get to you faster, sometimes not. In general, Amazon tries not to over-promise a fast delivery to prevent disappointments and such…

As to whether one should get the HD560S or HD6XX or HD600 or Jubilee or something else from another manufacturer, well, the internet and the audiophoolia forums are full of opinions 🙂

And as they say about opinions… they are like onions, they may make you cry 😉
